It's been a good decade, boys.  
So, I'm a little late for Arashi's 10th Anniversary Day #1: The Honeymoon in Hawaii! After reading so many touching (really guys, I'm a big ball of emotion when it comes to this stuff!) entries where people try to capture a small fraction of their love in the form of text, I'm not even going to attempt it. Arashi has brought a lot more love into my life than I can even say. ♥♥♥

Instead, I'll share with you a meme I had entirely too much fun doing! Now, it wasn't originally an Arashi meme. That didn't last long. ;)

Taken from rabidline:
An Arashi^ Image Meme - Use any variety of pictures that are already on your hard drive to answer the criteria. They can be drawings, photographs, screen caps, anything you want.

1. a picture with flowers.

(Ha, I think I had a picture of everyone with flowers but this one was one of the earliest I saved. Before my Arashi love began actually!)

2. a picture in which the color blue dominates.

(Ninoooooo. Ugh, fuck you Nino, that face. It's too much!)

3. a picture with smiling faces.

(So many faces I love! So many smiles that make me happy!)

4. a "we're a team!" picture.

(If I look at this picture for too long [read: more than a split second], my eyes start to tear up. No joke.)

5. a picture with seven or more colors.

(I tried to pick the MOST colorful photo I had! VS ARASHI set, you're the best! [This was capped for Jun smiling fondly at Ohno, I'm sure.])

6. an angsty picture.

(Both Nino and the CUT photoshoots were my first choice for angst.)

7. a picture you think of when you hear the word "sweet".

(Augh, so many images crossed my mind. I ultimately went with Sho's fondness for Aiba. He loves and indulges him so much, you guys.)

8. a "best friends" picture.

(Similarly, I'm pretty sure I could make a case for everyone being best friends with each other. But I'm currently watching "Yamada Taro Monogatari", so Sho and Neen! Best friends of destiny! There's just something special about them.)

9. a picture that will make us go "oh my!"

(AIBAAAAA. You're going to kill me one day!)

10. an "awwwh" picture.


11. a rainy day picture.

(See also: A WONDERFUL DAY.)

12. a "cling!" picture.

(You can identify Jun by his long, lanky body. Also, his tendency to cling to Ohno.)

13. a group picture.


14. a cuddly picture.

(This is pretty much all Arashi ever. Though Ohmiya totally owned this one in my mind.)

15. an action picture.

(The action that began it all for me! Once I saw Ohno's hips in motion, there was no going back. I was an Arashi fan for life, I just didn't realize it at that very moment!♥♥♥)

16. a kissing picture.

(It counts! The kissing is imminent! Just imagine this a few frames forward and there is lips meeting a nose. I have others [OF COURSE] but I really wanted this one!)

17. a picture you think of when you hear the word "ouch!"

(It was the first blow and I think it's hard to top. Though I'm also imagining the giant feathers. Ouch.)

18. a picture with someone sleeping in it.

(This is it's own genre in Arashi photographs. They know our kinks so well.)

19. a picture that will make us laugh.


20. commenters' choice! what kind of picture do you wanna see? Suggest an Arashi category! I will try to spam you with a picture!

If you want to steal this meme (and please do!), here's the code for the Arashi version:

That is some flower! I don't think I'd ever seen that particular pic or I'd remember it. Haha, I can't think of Jun pics without thinking of the one with him and the peacocks in the wall calendar. That guy can pose with anything. :) I love all your choices! I stopped saving Arashi pics a long time back cause I didn't think I'd ever had time to actually look at them, but it's good to see you staying with it! So many good pictures.

Um, funniest Arashi group pic? Due to crazy costume choices, weird faces, whatever.

Ummmmmmmmmmmm... man, I could give you flail for each picture but I have to DO THINGS, like laundry, and stare at my desktop background. VERY IMPORTANT STUFF. But I have a prompt for the last part! IT'S EVIL.

One picture of each member that showcases your favorite body part of theirs. Like Ohno's hands or Nino's collarbone or that spot under Matsujun's mouth. SOMETHING LIKE THAT. ONLY ONE PER MEMBER. : )
